Montenegro grb-holder Country Housing Project The year 2021 was marked by many changes in the political scene of Montenegro and the reorganisation of the public sector. Amid these structural transformations and the ongoing pandemic, 2021 saw the unhindered continuation of all construction works and entry into the final phase of completing the Home for the Elderly in Nikšić. Despite the administrative and resource changes, the RHP team at the Ministry of Finance and Social Welfare sought to continue its mission, resolving all issues that impacted the successful implementation of the Country Housing Project in Montenegro. We have reached the final stage, and next year, we should reap the rewards of the efforts invested in the previous period. Budimirka Đukanović

OVERVIEW

Over the past 20 years, Montenegro has provided shelter to displaced persons from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, as well as to internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Kosovo. While some of the displaced persons and IDPs have already integrated locally, most of them are still in need of durable housing solutions due to their extreme socio-economic vulnerability.

The Montenegrin Government has over the years constructed some 1 300 housing units with the support of international donors; however, this has not been enough to cover the needs. In 2011, the Government of Montenegro adopted the National Strategy for Durable Solutions for Displaced and Internally Displaced Persons, with special emphasis on the Konik area. The Strategy has created a framework for the permanent and sustainable resolution of displacement issues in Montenegro.

In Montenegro, the Regional Housing Programme (RHP) provides durable housing solutions to the most-vulnerable displaced and internally displaced persons through local integration or within institutions of the social welfare system, such as Homes for the Elderly. In total, 662 households (or almost 2 000 individuals) should benefit from the RHP.
